Over the past few years Otakon and ConnectiCon have been within a week or so of each other, and over the past few years I've grown accustomed to the many differences between the conventions I've come to refer to as my "big two of the summer."
Where I'm heavily involved with ConnectiCon in terms of programming and hosting events, Otakon is so big that I'm barely a blip on their radar. And I'm not complaining! Tens of thousands of people are going to descend upon Baltimore and I'm going to all but barricade myself behind my table in the Artist Alley, where I'll be pulling close to twelve hour days. So don't go looking for me in any panel rooms or at any events. At Otakon you can reliably find me at my table for three straight days, eager to meet folks and glad to have a headquarters from which to operate for the weekend.
That's all from me for now.
